The Texas Historical Commission is excited to announce the Texas Archeology Month Fair on Saturday, 10/29/2022, at the French Legation Historic Site. This fair will celebrate the practice of archeology, the history of central Texas, and methods on how to learn from the histories reflected in the archeological record. Our hope is to spread education, awareness, and the fun of archeology with the greater Austin community.
